Hot on the heals of Vodafone UK’s HTC Magic announcement comes confirmation that Orange France will launch the HTC Dream on March 15th. The Android device – which is better known as the T-Mobile G1 – will be the first to use the platform in the country, prior to the HTC Magic’s launch on SFR later in the year.
Although pricing for the Orange France HTC Dream has not been announced, the carrier has released a few details of its monthly price plan for the handset. Right now we know that there four different tariffs starting from €23 per month ($29) to cover line rental, calls and messaging, with an extra charge of €36 per month ($45) if users want unlimited mobile internet access.
Interestingly, Orange is not yet a member of the Open Handset Alliance, unlike Vodafone. This could be a sign that Android’s potential is being recognized outside of Google’s existing group of supporters.
